What We Do

Preparing Kids for Life

Welcome to Motus Learning.

We are progressive psychologists who believe that every child has a right to be educated on how to take care of their mental health. Through our interactive '7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence' program, we educate primary and secondary school children about how to take care of their mental health and we teach teachers and parents about how to cultivate a pro-social mental health environment while taking care of themselves. Everything taught is research driven and individually tailored for children to understand. Schools working with Motus Learning have dramatically raised the education bar by teaching their students how to manage their mental health as well as their academics. Join the Motus Movement!

The 7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence

Alongside BPS accredited psychologists and primary school teachers, we have developed the evidence based '7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence' program. The program teaches children how to understand and protect their minds through cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, neurology, the five ways of well being,  mindfulness, empathy and social skills.

Our Aim

For Motus Learning, the aim of the program is to directly teach children how to deal with difficult life situations and to indirectly eliminate the stigma surrounding children talking about their emotions. By teaching these skills at a young age, children will have a far greater opportunity to develop healthy emotion regulation strategies, therefore mitigating the likelihood of developing unhealthy strategies such as repression and self-harm.

The Benefits

Emotional Intelligence is the foundation of the following skills:

I am 20 years teaching and this is by far the most engaging and  beneficial workshop that I've had in my class.

Pro-social Mental Health

Research has demonstrated that mental health issues in adults can be prevented if there is a proactive approach taken from a young age. The '7 Steps to Emotional Intelligence' program allows children to grow up with a healthy understanding of their emotions and how to manage them. This enhances their social skills, develops their friendships, and allows them to develop strong support systems to cope with difficult life events.

Decision Making

Our research has shown that emotionally intelligent children are better decision makers. Emotional intelligence acts as a buffer against dangerous situations for your children and it gives them a better insight into what career they want to pursue in the future. Emotional intelligence education increases the likelihood that children pick the rights choices to ensure they are on the right path to becoming happy and successful young adults.

Academic Performance

If children are able to regulate their emotions, it allows them to focus on their academics. Research has shown that emotional intelligence is better than any other skill or trait, including IQ, in relation to predicting academic success. Emotional intelligence gives children the opportunity to develop an internal coping system and interpersonal relationships, which allows them to flourish academically.

The Five Ways of Well Being

The Research

Scientifically proven to make a difference.

At Motus, making sure our program is scientifically proven is essential. Our research shows that our program statistically improves the emotional intelligence of children.

We measure the trait emotional intelligence of children before and after the program and the following graph shows the average emotional intelligence score before the program and the average emotional intelligence score after the program. There is a statistically significant improvement.
